Your First Visit


Before your first appointment, we may ask you some questions to determine if we would be able to help you and have you complete an introduction form. At your Initial Consultation appointment we will have you fill out more comprehensive forms  about your current state of health, past illnesses, and family history.

These questions are important because our holistic approach takes everything into account. Your current symptoms may not seem related to past health issues, but our bodies are complex landscapes and everything that happens to them leaves its mark.

We will take some measurements that include blood pressure readings, weight and body fat analysis. We will go on to discuss your health concerns, how they may be affecting your life and ask any pertinent questions to help us better understand your case.  We  utilize different tools in our examination and may include palpation, pulse and tongue diagnosis and  muscle testing (Nutrition Response Testing and or Morphogenic Field Technique (MFT) to see what your body has to tell us about your current condition. (See Video Below) These methods allow us  to create the most individualized solution for restoring your health.

After your first Consultation appointment we will carefully review your case and our findings and will determine whether your case will respond well to our methods for restoring health and wellness.  We will prepare a Report of Findings which will go over your health concerns and lay out a customized health restoration program based on your case. 

Your Report of Findings Visit

The Report of Findings appointment is usually scheduled for a few days after the Initial Consultation to allow us to carefully evaluate your case.  At this appointment we will go over your Report of Findings and personalized program for health restoration with you. The fee for the Report of Findings is already included in your Initial Consultation fee.

If you would like to do the program we can begin your first Therapeutic appointment on the same day and there will be a fee for the treatment and any herbs/supplements recommended on your program. 

If our findings tell us that your case will not respond as well to our system for restoring health or you are not ready to start the prescribed program there will be no further charge.

About Muscle Testing 

Muscle testing is painless, we will simply be pushing down on your outstretched arm to determine its strength while pressing on various acupressure points. We have little vials that we use that represent various immune challenges, environmental toxins, food and environmental allergens. By bringing these vials close to your body while testing your muscle strength, we can determine which might be giving you trouble. This is an interactive process and we will be explaining what we are testing and what your body is telling us throughout. Please see the video below to see how the process works for both adults and children.

Acupuncture Treatment (not usually done on First Visit)

The acupuncture points we choose will depend on your condition. Once the needles are inserted, we will leave you to lie comfortably for 15-20 minutes with the needles in place. Many people find acupuncture treatment deeply relaxing, and it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during this time.

Nutritional Therapy

Based on our findings and the results of your muscle testing we may suggest certain herbs of nutritional supplements to help with your condition. We will explain the benefits of each as well as provide you specific dosages.
